My bulbhouse seems to be dominated by colchicums at the moment.  Here's some:
Colchicum hungaricum
Colchicum hungaricum Velebit Star (not a lot of difference here)

thanks for the photos, Diane. My winter flowering Colchicums are long past. Merenderas are now looking good

Love 'em all, Diane. Beautiful potfuls, as we would expect from you. I think that not enough people grow Colchicum, they're great .. especially the smaller ones, so dainty but with substance.
